Susan B Anthony Neighborhood Community Vision Plan "Creating Connections" - October 2008
A community-based âVision Planâ for the Susan B. Anthony neighborhood was prepared by the RRCDC, in collaboration with the Susan B. Anthony Neighborhood Steering Committee, in order to provide written and visual urban design plans that reflect the goals and ideas of community members for revitalization of their neighborhood, the commercial district and the underdeveloped and underutilized areas surrounding the district. This Vision Plan incorporates ideas suggested by approximately 60 community members who attended the Susan B. Anthony Neighborhood Community Design Charrette, held on June 9, 2007, and expresses these ideas as elements of good design and planning for healthy viable communities. The process of creating the plan began in 2006 when the neighborhood association began working toward the charrette with the RRCDC. Post-Charrette work to create a Vision Plan began in the spring of2008 and proceeded through the fall. The Vision Plan features overlays on base plans, each including recommendations for design and development strategies for areas within the Susan B. Anthony Neighborhood Charrette area. The Vision Plan also includes detailed drawings which show how the implemented scheme would look and feel from a userâs perspective. The primary recommendations in the plan are based on guiding design concepts which were expressed as important by community members at the charrette.
